I am up late because I am super exited about the shorts that I have been making lately.
And by lately I mean yesterday and today.
Here are the ones I made earlier today.
The shorts are super comfy and I was really happy with how they turned out, except the stitching shows wicked bad (I don't use the word wicked enough anymore- I must be losing touch with my New England up-bringing).
Oh, and I haven't added a waist yet. I was too busy wearing them :)
I made a second pair tonight. This pair I made for 2 reasons.
1. I really need shorts
2. I have this awesome fabric I bought on clearance forever ago and I want to make some shorts with it, but I want them to come out really good.
So I have been practicing. I haven't got the waist part down yet :(
The second pair I made tonight I made from a button down shirt. I think they came out pretty cool (except for the waist).
These pants have the buttons down one side and a pocket in the front and back. I sewed the button down part closed so there wouldn't be any gaps and such showing off my undies.
Any who. That is what I have been up to the last few days.
When I haven't been working on shorts, I have been getting some stuff together because I will be a vendor at the next Sample Sunday at Prairieland Herbs in Woodward, IA. I am super excited and a little nervous. I am going to be selling:
Vinyl Record Bowls and Cups
Recycled Journals- The journal covers are made from the vinyl record covers.
Granola Notes- Blank note cards made from Sunbelt granola bar boxes and old calendars and maps.
I will also have some felt flowers and a chaotic mix of some other goodies, but I am trying to focus (for my first time anyway) on just a few of the items I make.
If you live in the central Iowa area and are looking for something to do, stop on by Prarieland Herbs on June 12th for their Sample Sunday!
